Littleport Station

Littleport Station is to get £80,000 that will be spent on seating, signage, cycle parking and a waiting shelter. The schemes, which should all be complete by June, are the result of the Government's Passenger Benefit Fund programme designed to ensure the rail industry compensate rail users for past disruption. More than two years ago the Government announced it was holding Govia Thameslink Railway to account for unacceptable performance following the introduction of the May 2018 timetable. It meant GTR would contribute to a fund for each station based on the level of disruption. Littleport has now been allocated £80,000 and consultation with passengers and stakeholders determined what improvements should be funded. While I would much prefer that constituents enjoy reliable services, it is good to see station users get some benefit from the previous poor service and it is right that ministers hold firms to account for the previous disruption. Improved rail services are vital to support local development and regeneration plans in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire and I will continue to push for investment in local transport improvements, and continue to make this case to the Secretary of State for Transport.
